Man hacks wife’s lover to death

KONNI: Raged over his wife’s alleged illicit relationship, a man murdered his wife’s paramour.

The victim has been identified as Ponnachan alias Samuel (48). He was hacked to death in front of his wife late last night at the Peroorkkulam Junction.

The police have taken one Rajendran and his friend into custody in connection with the incident. A three-member team including Rajendran hacked Ponnachan from behind while he was closing his shop last night. Soon after the incident, they fled in a maruti car.

Rajendran and his wife Shailaja were staying on the first floor of Ponnachan’s house for years. Rajendran, a tipper lorry driver, suspected his wife having an affair with Ponnachan.  They used to fight on this issue regularly.

The couple divorced later and Shailaja was living in a house arranged by Ponnachan.  Rajendran told police that he hacked him to death as Ponnachan had ruined his life.
